I've been using slurpd for quite some time now with fairly good results however I wanted to take advantage of the newer features in syncrepl. Specifically the ability to have the slave push to the master.
I was able to set this up in relative short order using the example provided in http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin23/syncrepl.html
I start up my slave server and it does indeed grab all the database information from my master, however I can no longer write to my master server. What am i missing from the documentation?
If I try to add a simple ldif file it fails with the following error:
[root@myserver backups]# ldapadd -f replicator-policy.ldif -x -D cn=root,dc=somedomain,dc=somedomain -W
Enter LDAP Password:
adding new entry "cn=replicate,ou=policies,dc=somedomain,dc=somedomain" ldapadd: Server is unwilling to perform (53) additional info: shadow context; no update referral
If I add an updateref to my slave slapd.conf pointing back to my master server the error changes to this:
